08-13-2010 16:33 BJT

RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- Brazil wants to boost trade with China in agricultural products, and will export more pork to and import more fish from China in the next few years, Brazilian Agriculture Minister Wagner Rossi said Thursday.

The two countries enjoy a very good trade partnership, but there is still huge potential for expansion, Rossi told Xinhua in an interview.

"Today, China is our main trade partner, and Brazil, as I have heard, is already China's 10th largest trade partner," Rossi said. "I think as our economies are complementary, we have a great future for cooperation, especially in agriculture."

"We have a very positive attitude toward China. President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva considers China to be a very important partner, and our goal is to add new products in the trade with China and increase quantities and values of our trade," he added.

As Brazil and China share a common goal of providing better living conditions to their people, food production is very important in this regard, Rossi said, adding that the two countries can help each other in this area.

"We have a lot to learn from China and we can offer our experience in other fields. ... There is so much that both countries can learn from each other and improve the lives of their people," he said.

According to Rossi, there are many projects where Brazil and China can work together, not only on their own territories, but in other countries that China may already be helping.

The minister also considered China as an example to be followed.

"I think China is a successful case, because it has managed to feed a its population, and have one of the highest numbers of youngsters graduating from college, especially in scientific fields. That is an example we should applaud and follow," he said.
